Episode Review: Veronica’s House | Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots

By Jeremy Carden

Well folks, The Haves and the Have Nots has finally returned to OWN! I have to say that I am pleased that the show is back such after a short break.


In my opinion, the episode that dropped on May 1st was the best episode of Season 5! Honestly, the overall pacing and story lines of the episode worked for me. True, the first 20 minutes did seem a bit stretched out and slow. Did anyone else get Acrimony vibes during the opening scene with Veronica claiming that David is in HER house with a whore?


However, things took a turn in the right direction when Veronica and Justin met in the hallway of the jail. For me, the episode just really started to take its foot off the break.


Of course, how could I not talk about the cliffhanger between Wyatt and his parents! Everyone is talking about that backhand the he gave Katheryn and the wine bottle that was slammed on the back of Jim’s head.

If you want all my thoughts on the episode, I urge you to check out my video below:

Trust and believe that I have a lot to talk about. This is the best time to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you have not done so already.

We will have new episodes of the show for the next 3 months, and I could not be more excited about it! There is so much ground to cover over the next 11 Tuesdays.


My channel has just hit over 25,000 subscribers, but there is still room for plenty of HAHN fans to jump abroad!

Please share the video around and tell other fans to join the channel!

If this episode was an indication of what is to come for the rest of the season, I feel that we are in for one heck of a ride.


Overall, I give “Veronica’s House” a 9/10. It was easily better than the first 10 episodes that we got during the beginning of 2018. For me, the first portion of the episode moving a bit slow was really the only thing holding it back from a perfect score.


Next week’s episode looks intriguing as well! If you want to see my trailer breakdown video for “In His Eyes” then you need to click on the video below ASAP:

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Who Will Die?

By Jeremy Carden


I haven’t written a theory on a subject like this since we found out that someone would die at the end of Season 2. Amanda Cryer was the victim during that season, and now fans are speculating who will be the victim at the end of Season 3.

At this point, I can honestly say that I do not know WHO will be the one to die in the season finale. There are just so many potentially characters who could get the ax from the series that I cannot even think straight!

What I will do in this blog is simply go over every character that I think will be a candidate for death and why. Perhaps in next week’s episode, we will get more hints as to which character will be the one to die.

All we have is the preview of next week’s episode in the clip above, and I must say that it has me pointing in different directions. There is just no clear victim, but I will start off with the 3 that has fans talking the most.


Jim’s call to Mama Rose and her boys from the Malone gang was to order a bloodbath. The 3 people that he named were Terrell, Professor Cannon and Veronica.

  • Terrell was the police office that allowed the rapist “Toxic” to come into Wyatt’s prison cell to sexually assault him
  • Professor Cannon was the man who raped Amanda, and was arguably responsible for her committing suicide
  • Veronica was the one who paid Terrell to have Toxic placed into Wyatt’s cell in order to give him a true taste of prison life

When the Malones are given a murder request, they do NOT play around! Considering how disappointed Mama Rose was when Jim said not to kill Candace, she has a trigger finger itching to be used.

These are 3 of the most likely characters to be killed off by the end of this season. However, there are more than just these 3 to speculate about, and I will go through them one-by-one.



Her reason for dying is simply because she revealed that Jim has 2 sons by her, but if anything happens to her, I am sure that everyone will point the finger at Jim for what she did to him on live television.

Jim has even said that even though Celine has a lot of bullets to fire (the fact that she had worked for the Cryers 28 years, she knows EVERYTHING there is to know about them. Basically, Celine has all of the dirty laundry to hang out and dry for everyone to see…if she wanted to), she has fired the biggest one being about his children outside of his marriage to Katheryn.


We see in the new episode that Jim goes over to her apartment and pulls “a Wyatt” by trying to seduce her.


Kind of awkward when you think about it because Wyatt had Celine in the same position back at the beginning of this season…

He says that he is over at her apartment for revenge, but I wonder what exactly he has in mind. Maggie told him to put his sexual energy into his campaign, but it looks like he is attempting to put it on Celine instead!

Despite the fact that Celine is no longer in the title opening, I don’t think that automatically means she dies. I mean they did that with Amanda AFTER it was revealed that she was dead. Look at Maggie, she is playing a much bigger role than Celine, but she was never in the opening. Now if Celine does die, Tyler was pretty much showing us her demise episodes in advance! However, I don’t think that is the case this time around.



At first, I thought he would commit suicide after what he went through in prison. However, it seems he has a bigger plot coming up involving getting back at his parents for leaving him in jail.



Doubt she dies, but I am going over everyone who could be killed off. I do not think that Katheryn will die because she has been more of a spectator in these past few episodes.

I will say that since Hanna’s house is on fire, the video will she took of Katheryn before she went into surgery back in Season 1 is my main concern. Was that video still in the house, or did Benny have the purse holding the video moved into his new house?

Besides, I think that Katheryn will end up buying Hanna a new house anyway. Which is ironic since the house Candace bought for Benny (with the money extorted from the Cryers) is where he wants Hanna to live anyway.



Given his 10 minute speech to Hanna at the hospital about how he is a man now, and he will handle Q; I think he will either get killed or “lose” if and when Q comes back.

Low and behold, Hanna’s home is now destroyed because Benny bailed him out of prison, but did not get the job done.

Quincy will get the upper hand because he is going for blood now (not sure if he knew Hanna’s house was empty when he drove right through it), and I don’t think he will let Benny beat him up three times in a row.

I do not think Benny will die just yet because he has a tow company and a house now thanks for Candace’s ill-gotten gains. Benny is now slowly beginning to see that his baby sister is not as legit as she said she is. With that being said, I think he might make it to see Season 4.



Q dying is most likely a result of his recent actions. Benny looks PISSED after figuring out that Q was the one to destroy his mother’s house.

Candace will find out that Q had come to the hospital and taken papers from Aaliyah’s purse. My guess is that paper had Candace’s information on it. From there, Candace will figure out that Q now knows where she lives.

I think that either Benny or Candace will call on Warlock to finish Q off for good this time! He knows too much, and has done far more than enough to end his life.



I doubt that he dies because Veronica “needs” him alive to finish her plot with her grandchild and Jeffery’s marriage to Melissa.

Quincy said he would kill him, but he is too busy with his son and getting revenge on the Youngs to worry about him (at least for now).

In my opinion, she dies is Quincy comes to her apartment thinking that Jeffery is still living there.



The only way that I can see him dying is if Quincy finds out that Oscar has been messing around with his woman. However, I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon. Everyone knows that I do not trust Oscar, and the only thing “dying” about him is his “relationship” with Candace.

I still say that he is going to take ALL of her money, and leave her with nothing! His trip to New York and Paris will most likely be his “going away” trip from Candace.



I doubt he is going anywhere anytime soon because he has now thrown the first punch (well choke/strangle) in his battle with David that is creeping over the horizon. I think it is safe to say that Season 4 will have these 2 going at it.


Jim even posted the above picture on social media from filming new episodes of HAHN for the new season.

It begs the question as to what exactly is going to happen especially given the fact that his facial hair has grown out. This could mean that Jim is going to be in a place that he cannot keep up his regular appearance.

Since he has facial hair and bruises, we can assume that he is going to be somewhere for an extended amount of time. Someplace where fights occur on the regular, a place like…PRISON?!?!?


The only way that he could be sent to prison is if Jennifer gets the evidence needed (Jeffrey’s car) to place the Cryers and Harringtons behind bars for covering up the hit-and-run charges.

This seems very likely because of a few facts:

  1. Jeffrey somehow discovers his car at Benny’s Towing
  2. Jennifer’s boss told her not to go after the Cryers/Harringtons again unless she has the car
  3. She is on the phone with Wyatt saying that she knows about the Norman-Wyatt prison switch, and wanted to know if Wyatt would like to get back at his dad for what he did to him


Wyatt’s vengeance is placed on the wrong person because even though Jim had him in jail, he did so in a “protective environment.” At least until Veronica played her cards and that led to him getting sexually assaulted.

Jeffrey knows what happened to Wyatt while he was in the jail, and would be willing to help out his friend by getting back at his parents for letting that happen. Meaning that Jeffrey will tell Wyatt about the car, and Wyatt would tell Jennifer. This will lead to her having the ammo needed to arrest Jim, Katheryn, David and Veronica!


Considering the finale is coming, I think that it has to end with a bang! With the death of one of the characters, or Jennifer finally getting what she needs to take out Jim and David!

Or the picture could simply mean that the makeup team applied bruises and whatnot to Jim’s face before shaving him, but I would not know because I do not know much about makeup…

This just goes to show that I take this show and these theories very seriously!



Just as I said about Jim, since these two good friends are not friends anymore; he won’t die (at least not anytime soon). He and Jim throwing down next season (if anything happens to Veronica that is) will be the main event! I doubt Tyler Perry would kill off the man who is running for governor, or at least not just yet.



In the preview for next week, Maggie is seen coming over to Veronica’s new house. My guess is that she comes over to try and create some form of peace between them for the sake of the campaign.

Remember that Veronica and David appeared to be a loving couple at the first live campaign announcement. If Maggie is trying to get David to the governor’s mansion, he has to have the illusion of a healthy marriage and family.

11026595_10204874368485613_6997965045096577265_n (1)

However, this is far from the truth considering Veronica has already handed him divorce papers, attempted to kill him and is currently in the middle of an affair with Benny.

His son is not the straight man standing by Melissa like he was on stage, and there is no telling how that “wedding” announcement is actually going to play out.


Veronica does tell Maggie that there are no victims around, and Maggie was puzzled by that statement. In any case, Maggie saying that she wants David to run for governor could be the thing that “saves her life.”


This face that Veronica makes in the preview for next week has me confused. Is she laughing or crying? What is the cause of that face?

I am interested in finding out that is for sure. Given the fact that Veronica is the “new Amanda” so to speak, this look she gives Maggie has me fearful for her life. If Maggie going to Veronica’s house is the cliffhanger ending of the episode, I do have a feeling we might not see her in Season 4…



Seriously, how long is this man going to walk around before that kidney failure puts him out to pasture? If Benny does die (which I have my doubts about), I figure that Tony will appear out of nowhere wanting his organs in order to save his life. What would result in Tony’s demise is if Benny is NOT a compatible organ donor, and all of his ruthlessness will have been in vain.

Overall, there are nearly a dozen people who are candidates for dying at the end of Season 3.

I omitted Candace because I think she has to lose what she has before dying. She has way too much to answer for before being killed off quickly (similar to Veronica). Hanna has too much of a role in the story to be removed from it as well.


Honestly, it does seem clear that Maggie is the “What the hell are you doing here?” guest at Veronica’s door when she answers it. However, who is to say that Quincy is not the person to knock on her door?


Q hitting her could be the reason for the face she makes in the above photo, but he has never knocked before entering into her house before. Why start now?


Perhaps “Toxic” gets out of prison somehow, and he wants revenge for Veronica not putting the money on his books after sexually assaulting Wyatt like she asked him to do.

Who do you think will bite the dust?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Will David Find Out About The Affair?

by Jeremy Carden


Better late than never, but here is a new topic for discussion before the new episode tonight on OWN!


I have a hunch that David will NOT find out about the affair between Veronica and Benny.


I think Hanna will find a way to “hide” what she found in Benny’s room; her son and a married woman in bed together.


Somehow I think that she convinces Benny to come to the living room (after getting dressed), and leaves Veronica in Benny’s room.

Benny and David talk about why his truck is at Hanna’s house. My guess is that Benny explains how Veronica got him out of prison, and let him have the truck, but was trying to give it back.


However, due to Amanda’s funeral and the Harrington Mansion burning down, he could not reach Veronica to give the truck back.

David then gets his keys from Benny and leaves the house to go back to the hotel. That is when Veronica comes out of the room later and is confronted by Hanna. She makes the cougar go outside while she waits for a car to pick her up because Hanna was not going to let her stay in her home for another minute.

I mean David left with his truck meaning that Veronica’s only option is to call for a car to pick her up (not that she would ride with David anyway). Not to mention it was a car that she called to drop her off at the house last week.

Hence why Hanna said that she could wait outside in a black neighborhood without getting hurt since she was a black woman.


After Veronica leaves to go outside, Hanna confronts her about being too married and too old to pursue her son. Then she confronts her son about living under her roof acting like that, and Benny responds that he is only living there to help her.


That is 100% correct because remember Benny WAS living in another place not too far from his mother’s house, but moved back because his mother was battling cancer and had huge bills to pay.


Later in the episode, Candace picks up Benny, and takes him to the towing company that she won in the auction a few episodes ago. This suggests to me that David does not know about the affair just yet because so much is going to occur tonight.


A few episodes from tonight, Veronica will arrive at the tow company to have sex with Benny again.


Do you think that David will find out about the affair tonight, and what would he do to Benny if he does?


I will say that even though Hanna might be able to hide the affair, remember that Maggie has a detective sitting outside of the house or down the street watching Veronica’s every move. She might tell David what is going on, or hold her cards for the right moment…

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Candace Reveals That Amanda Was Raped

By Jeremy Carden


Katheryn Cryer pulled a “Rice Krispies” last week! What do I mean by that?


She snapped, crackled and POPPED Candace in the back of the head with that wine bottle!

I am going to jump right into this theory blog because it has to do with Jim and Katheryn possibly holding Candace hostage in the next episode!


We do know that Candace will be released within the episode because she visits Quincy in prison and sleeps with Oscar at the hotel.

However, what does Candace do that allows her to be released?

It seems clear that she provides the Cryers with the answers that they were looking for regarding Amanda. Katheryn was looking for some kind of reasoning behind Amanda’s suicide.

Going back a few episode, she was sitting in Amanda’s room (later Jim came in as well) trying to find answers. She even admitted that there may never be any answers provided.


Allow me to just take a moment to ask an important question that seems to have gone unanswered ever since Amanda was found dead in her room; Where did Amanda’s gun go?

She had it while running through the house, and it appears that she shot herself in the head.


I still think that a suicide was NOT the cause of her death. Until the location of that gun is revealed (similar to the Black Sedan), I think there is reasonable doubt regarding the cause of Amanda’s death.

Back near the end of Season 2, Katheryn was searching for the gun in Amanda’s room. However, she was unable to find it before Amanda returned. Even though an answer may never be given, I still think everything behind Amanda’s death has not been revealed. The same goes for Wyatt hitting Little Lizzie, but that is another blog for another day.


Jim blames the death of his daughter on Candace, and it appears that Katheryn will be doing the same as well. Perhaps not to the extent of her husband, but she did knock Candace out cold…


Jeffrey has told Candace on multiple occasions that the Cryers will kill to protect their family name, and they would most likely point their fingers at her to blame for Amanda’s death.

As we all know, Candace did not listen to the warnings, and now has ended up in a tight spot. In my opinion, I think that Candace will tell Jim and Katheryn about Professor Cannon.


You have to pay very close attention to a teaser trailer that was revealed before Two Funerals aired, and you will notice Professor Cannon appears in a “blink-and-you-miss” moment.


Jim and Katheryn appear to be waiting outside of their vehicle in a parking lot that looks like a college campus. Remember that Cannon was a professor at the law school that Candace and Amanda attended, and it would make sense for the Cryers to wait for him to show up there.

It looks like he is being confronted by the Cryers, and the only way they would have been pointed in his direction would be if Candace told them about Cannon.

Honestly, I cannot say that I am 100% certain that Candace will say that Professor Cannon raped their daughter. I will say that she might drop his name when it comes down to their interrogation on why Amanda would do what she did.


After being raped by Professor Cannon and Candace being short with her, Amanda took pills to commit suicide. That was why she was in the hospital back in Season 1, and Jim blamed Candace for that. Amanda told Jim that Candace was mad at her, and she was having a hard time in law school as well.


Jim might think that Professor Cannon was too hard on his daughter (that did not sound right, but stay with me), and the pressure of law school was the reason for her death. In the picture above with Jim and Katheryn, they clearly look pissed.


I do not know if a professor being difficult was the reason for the look on their faces. If Candace did tell them that he raped Amanda, there will be hell to pay for Cannon! I bet he will have wished that Amanda pulled the trigger on him when she had the gun barrel down his throat.

Candace may even tell them about the pregnancy test that Jim found in the apartment belonged to Amanda and not her! Either that, or Jim will figure it out for himself.


Keep in mind that Candace still needs a letter from Cannon that would allow her to go straight to the bar exam. When Jim had movers go to the apartment, Candace had all of her things taken away as well (which included the letter that Cannon gave her).

My guess is that Candace might contact Cannon for another letter before the Cryers go after him. She even called him a few episodes ago in order to get another letter. Cannon could be confronted by Candace in the school for the letter, and then leave for the parking lot where the Cryers are waiting for him.


What questions do you think Candace will be asked on Tuesday by the Cryers? Will she reveal Amanda was raped by Professor Cannon, or point the Cryers in the right direction. Will Professor Cannon give Candace another letter allowing her to skip to the bar exam? Even if he gets on for her, will she get it before the Cryers dig their claws into Cannon?
